Bestial Warlust is a black metal band formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1993. The band was first formed under the name "Corpse Molestation" and at the time played brutal death metal with five demos and one demo compilation under the name. Their lyrical themes involved death, war and blasphemy. The band also uses pseudonyms instead of actual names to hide their identity. They were also one of the pioneers of Australian black metal, [cite web |url= | biography of Bestial Warlust |author= |last=Rivadavia |first=Eduardo |quote=One of Australia's first black metal bands of note, the wonderfully named Bestial Warlust arguably still qualify as one of its most extreme ever. ] recording two uncompromising black/death metal albums in the mid-nineties before breaking up.

In Australia, the mid 1990's saw the release of Blood Duster's "Fisting the Dead", and releases from other significant Australian bands like Sadistik Exekution, Abominator, Destroyer 666 and Bestial Warlust. The Australian sound mimicked the music of the earliest death metal bands like Possessed and early Morbid Angel. [cite web |url=,M1| title=Death Metal Music: The Passion and Politics of a Subculture, p. 72] Bestial Warlust was formed when brutal death metal band, "Corpse Molestation", changed its name to Bestial Warlust in 1993. The band is considered an important black metal band in Australia's history, being the first band of that genre from the area and arguably still one of the most extreme in Australia's history. [cite web |url= | biography of Bestial Warlust |author= |last=Rivadavia |first=Eduardo |quote=One of Australia's first black metal bands of note, the wonderfully named Bestial Warlust arguably still qualify as one of its most extreme ever. ] Many members of Bestial Warlust went on to form Deströyer 666.
